Getting Rid of Scraps...

Well, I haven't done two postings in one day for quite a while, but I'm pretty sure I'll be sleeping after school tomorrow - especially since I go from school right to physio - so a nap will be in order.
Anyway - as I promised myself, I used up a fair number of little pre-stamped pieces that I had tucked away in a drawer. It sort of made it easier to create the cards - but I just think I was having a lucky day!
The Haiku Friendship follows the sketch challenge over at iheart2stamp. I used the little green microbeads for the centre of the flower. The pre-stamped piece is the one with "friendship" embossed on it.
The Technique Challenge on December 24 was Faux Silk with a POP. I could not get it to work that day, but I managed to succeed today. You can't tell in the photo, but the tissue paper is wrinkled. This is also a Sketch Challenge and Colour Challenge from a couple weeks ago...and I'm submitting it for Stamp Something's Challenge this week which was to create something NEW - for me, it was this new technique.

The only things I added to this card today are the "T" and the little flower in the corner. The rest sat in my little drawer for almost a year.

The three stamped pieces for the black and white card were already cut to size and matted. I'm using this for the Ways to Use it Challenge for the New Year which was to add something silver to the card - thus the two little brads and the silver writing.
Thanks for dropping by - Hope everyone has a great Monday - JOAN

Wow, you've been busy! Great color combo on the first card and I love the micro beads! It's great using up scraps and things we've been saving for "someday" and making such pretty cards! Great job on all of these!
